BP, Exxon, Saturn Oil & Gas - North America and EU ready for oil deal?

Something is brewing in North America, because nothing less than social and economic independence is at stake. COVID 19 has shown that dependencies in the supply chain pose great dangers. On the one hand, modern society had to learn how difficult it is to obtain masks and, on the other hand, Saudi Arabia ruined the price stability of crude oil by increasing its production volume. An act that deliberately came at an inopportune moment, because with the measures to stem the spread of the corona virus, the demand for the black gold had already fallen by over 20%. The price level of recent weeks at USD 20 per barrel for WTI will drive a large part of the US oil industry into ruin and increase dependence on the OPEC states.

About the author


Canada and USA theoretically self-sufficient

Before the Corona Crisis, Canada's production volume was around 4.5 million barrels a day and the USA produced over 10 million barrels. In terms of volume, production should be sufficient to protect itself from imports through an embargo, but due to the distances between the oil fields and the metropolitan areas the western part of Canada still imports oil from Saudi Arabia.

In total, the two North American states imported 2.5 million barrels of crude oil per day. Should a deal be struck between the two countries and an embargo ban crude oil from overseas, this will significantly strengthen the domestic market.

OPEC increases power by all means

The transatlantic relationship can also be used by the EU to initiate a deal with Canada and the USA to also reduce dependence on OPEC countries. The cartel of 13 oil-producing countries is celebrating its 60th anniversary this year. Even if the price of oil is currently depressing the mood of its members, it is certain that power and influence over the global oil market will increase.

Ultimately, countries such as Saudi Arabia can produce cheaply and thus drive overseas competitors to ruin. The oil market was as big as all other commodity markets combined before COVID-19.

Economic independence in danger

The danger of a strong OPEC is obvious. The member countries are predominantly led by dominant families and despots. In some countries civil war or similar conditions prevail - no trace of human rights. For this reason, it can be assumed that the competitive advantage will be exploited after the collapse of the American and European producers and that consumers outside the OPEC countries will have to pay for the dependence.

The EU and North America are therefore well advised to protect domestic producers and their own independence. Oil is the blood in the veins of the economy. As soon as society has recovered from the Corona Crisis, the demand for oil will rise again.

ESG as a quality standard

A modern society should also be concerned about the origin of the raw material. Model companies are for example BP and Exxon. The Canadian oil producer Saturn Oil & Gas produces in Saskatchewan and has taken up the idea of ESG (Environmental Social Governance). For this reason, the young company has appointed the expert Jim Payne to the Board of Directors.

Jim Payne is the CEO of dynaCERT, a CleanTech company that has developed an award-winning hydrogen technology that reduces the emission of pollutants from internal combustion engines. By February 2021, Saturn's management has entered into price hedging at over 65 CAD per barrel. This risk awareness is a blessing for the company's planning security and shareholders.

Fairtrade crude oil is overdue

Anyone who attaches importance to the fact that eggs come from free-range hens and coffee or bananas are subject to fair trade should also be aware that oil from companies with ESG claims is a contribution to a better society. The current situation, which shows how easily highly developed industrial nations can become a pawn in the game, should be seen as a wake-up call for collective and overdue action: now and today.

BP, Saturn Oil + Gas, Gazprom - Oil companies offer great opportunities

  • Oil

The oil price came under pressure in mid-July following an OPEC meeting. Starting in August, production will be increased by 400,000 barrels per day. This arrangement is to apply initially until September 2022. From May 2022, the United Arab Emirates, Kuwait, Iraq, Saudi Arabia and Russia all want to increase their production capacities, which would mean additional production of around 1.6 million barrels per day. The price of crude oil subsequently slumped by around USD 10 to USD 65. However, the downward trend was already broken on July 20, and the price has since climbed back up to USD 72. Today we highlight three companies that produce oil.

Varta, Deutsche Rohstoff AG, Nordex: Multipliers in the commodity sector!

  • Oil

Commodity companies are currently sitting in the front row. But not all of them can profit! Only if a company has invested in recent years can it now deliver. Mining operations worldwide are currently working at the limits of their capacity, and supplying customers is also causing increasing problems. That is because supply chains have been badly hit by a lack of transport capacity, skyrocketing freight rates and pandemic-related outages. It is particularly noticeable in industry: Procurement prices for raw materials and precursors are going through the roof. We take a look at the books of some of the companies involved.

  • Oil

The reporting season for the second quarter of 2021 is in full swing. After the weak figures from the same period last year, caused by the Corona pandemic, analysts and investors expect significant earnings increases from companies that suffered heavy losses due to the global lockdowns. On the other hand, it will be interesting to see whether Corona beneficiaries such as Amazon can confirm their growth.
